Happy Tails 2013
Boss was a special story that we were afraid may not have a happy ending for a while there, but after an initial struggle, ABR got him into the family and he hit is big! Boss had a sibling that he had spent his entire life with until they were briefly separated when Champ was adopted but ABR did not have Boss to place. But these boys were destined to be together. By the time ABR had Boss in the family, Champ’s dad had decided he really needed someone to play with and as things turned out, Boss and Champ ended up back together! We are so happy for these handsome boys and so thankful to their dad for making that happen! Congratulations to you all!
Bam Bam (now known as Bandit) is loving his new life with his forever family! He has all the love and attention a good boxer boy needs! He loves riding in the car with the family. He has learned to get along with the cat and loves Grandma’s dog! We are so happy you found a perfect home Bandit! We wish you all many happy years together!
River has found his forever family and it was a match made in Heaven! He has a fur sister that he loves to play chase with! He has a household with 4 humans to love and dote on him! They say he has made the perfect addition to their family and they cannot imagine life without him! Congratulations sweet boy! Take good care of your family!
Yippy for Blossom! Blossom’s new family was looking for a girl to put the spring back in Barkley’s step. He had been sad and not as active since he lost his girl. Blossom and Barkley were fast friends and love to go play in the dog park. The whole family is excited to have Blossom in the house with them! Congratulations to you all! We hope you have many years of happiness and laughter together!
According to his forever family, "Yoshi (formerly known as Luke) has been incredibly great and easy to transition!! He fits in great and Bowser (his boxer brother and ABR alumni) is finally liking having him around full time :). Our daughter adores him and he's been amazing with her. We think he might end up being "her" dog!" Congratulations on your forever family (and thanks to your mom for snapping the picture)!
Tyson and Thor were siblings that came to ABR with the challenge of trying to be placed in a home that could take them both. A challenge at any time, but ABR had just placed another bonded pair in the days preceding these boys coming in. But they hit it big! They are both living the happy life together with their wonderful furever family! Not only can the boys be found hanging out on the dog couch together, their skin brother has even been caught going poty with the boys out in the yard. Congratulations handsome boys and your wonderful new family! We see lots of happy years together!
Tabby is now in her forever home!! She gets to join to skin siblings in her new
family. She will get to enjoy long walks with her mom and many trips to the pet
store. She is going to be extra spoiled being an only dog. Tabby picked her perfect
family and she has become their best friend. She will spend the rest of her life
being spoiled and loved.
Charlie was adopted today by an awesome couple and their 11 year old lab mix, Marley.
Since the husband is retired and will be home most of the time, Charlie will get his
fill of human companionship. Charlie needed work on his manners. Well wouldn't you
know that the husband has the time, knowledge, and patience to train Charlie. He will
also have the spry Marley to play with. We are so excited that Charlie has found a
home where he will get what he needs to grow into a well-behaved adult boxer.
Louie came to ABR as 'Hank', a nickname given because he was found in Henry County, but his new foster mom did not think he looked like a 'Hank'. Louie got his name from his sweet, silly, and mellow personality. After recovering from kennel cough and gaining some weight he was looking for his forever home. Louie is a lovebug who never met a stranger and when his perfect family came along everyone knew right away. He is currently being spoiled by two parents and two human brothers!
Max (formerly known as Hugo) went to his forever home. He has two adults that are home most of the day every day. He also has another rescue boxer, Maggie, to keep him company when his humans must leave him at the house. He will periodically also have grand kids to play with. While we are most certainly sad to see our happy little guy go, we are thrilled he has found such a great forever family!
Ali joins a family that quickly fell in love with him. He is adored and should never be short of attention. Ali loves that Mom works from home; no lonely days for him. He gets to prance about the neighborhood looking handsome and frequents the local pet stores showing off what a good boy he is. Mom is great company as Ali patiently wants for his skin siblings to get home from school. We are happy for this sweet baby. He's a great boy and deserves every ounce of love that he will get from his family. Congratulations, Ali!
People say, “I could never foster. I just couldn't give them up.” Families like Oscar's are why we can.
Oscar is easy to love: oh so cute!, sweet, smart, playful, entertainingly nosey, and for sure, a very good snuggler; But how would his fur sister receive this new attention hog into her home? With open paws! Oscar and Chelsea were instant friends. Their first meeting yielded two muddy boxers and later, an exhausted puppy. You just can't ask for two fur siblings to hit it off any better. Oscar is now and forever with his loving family; it was meant to be and we are thrilled for the entire family. He and his sister are deeply loved and will be spoiled the way all Boxer babies should be. We wish you all a long and happy life together.
A note from Max’s new parents: Max (formerly Zeke) is doing very well. He and Ellie (his 3 year old boxer sister) became buddies quickly and now play constantly. Their days are spent playing and wrestling in the back yard. In the evenings, they enjoy cuddling. Ellie has never been happier. Thanks for letting us bring Max home!
Sweet Cooper found his forever home with a sweet couple looking to adopt a play mate for their Boxer, Toby. The day they met, it was love at first sight for everyone! Now Cooper and Toby are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their baby human brother to complete their family! Congratulations on your happy tail Cooper! xoxo
Saige and her new forever family!! She'll have TONS of fun in this home!
Pogo, now Penny, found her forever home! She is so excited to have a mommy and daddy of her very own! Here she is loving on her daddy! She sure is a lucky girl!
Thank you so much for rescuing Hope and allowing her to come into our family. She has only been with us a few days but already fits in like a glove! Our other ABR rescue, Tebow, has a new playmate and they could not be happier together. Knowing a little bit about Hope's probable background we are so excited to be able to make up
for lost love!
Sam, ABR's first blind dog, went to his forever home last weekend! He joins Rocky Sr who was adopted from ABR last September. We have no doubt he will be loved and spoiled by his new mom and fur brother.
Tyson was fostered and adopted by Marianne and Cal Erickson. You’d never know he was a skinny little boy when they took him in. He has become such a handsome young man and is the total center of attention at his new home. Tyson has trained them well.
After being with ABR for 1year, 4months, Miss Faith finally got her forever home. We can't think of anyone more deserving!! Faith will love her big back yard :) Thank you to all the wonderful people who cooked chicken and rice for her in the beginning days with ABR...walked her and fell in love with her. She finally got her Happy Tail!l
Dozer went to his “Forever Home” today! He will be an only dog living the bachelor life. His skin father really fell for this big fella!
